Summary

I am a mineral deposits geologist who employs a range of tools and skills to study the nature of economically significant mineralization and its distribution through geological time and space. As the Mining Sector Leader I oversee the NHM’s consultancy services to the Mineral Exploration and Mining industry and have authored over 50 confidential consultancy reports. I have a diverse skills base that includes mineralogy, geochemistry, field mapping and sampling, and geographical information systems. I have specific interest in volcanic arc related styles of mineralization such as porphyry copper deposits and epithermal gold deposits. I currently supervise three PhD students investigating the world class porphyry deposits Resolution (Arizona, USA), Bingham Canyon (Utah, USA) and Oyu Tolgoi (Mongolia). I have a particular academic interest in the mineral deposits and metallogeny of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt. Currently I am part of the NHM team contributing to the EU Horizon 2020 funded FAME [Flexible And Mobile Economic processing technologies] project investigating the mineralogy, sustainable extraction and beneficiation of greisen, pegmatite and skarn deposits associated with rare metal granite systems in Europe.
